ved. FOURTH CHAMBER CONCERT.
II Was the I.nst Oho Thnt Will
Given This Season.
The fourth and final chamber con
cert of tho present season was by all
odds the best, and to an otherwise ex
cellent programme, rendered with un
common spirit, was added the novel
ty of the first nubile rendition of a
composition by the central figure
anions the musicians of this section,
The concert opened with a trio by
Boelsche in D, the andante movement
of which quickly put the nudience in a
receptive mood. Giles's sonata in F
for violin and piano followed, and
right here it should be said that those
who did not hear this number missed
not cmly one of the most exquisite bits
of Instrumental music which have
ever been produced in Soranton, but
also a chance to hear Mr. Ilemberger
at his best. Ills understanding with
his violin last evening was well-nigh
perfect. Never before, to our recollec
tion, has his instrument proved so re
sponsive to every touch,
The piece de resistance, the Ilem
berger string quartette in R flat, was
in some respects a puzzle. It bailies
our inexpert description; wo can only
say that it is as full of originality as
of surprises and will need to be hoard
a number of times to be fairly judged.
Its first two movements proved decid
edly piquant after a half hour of Grieg,
but it seemed last evening as if in his
andantlno the composer canleil Ills
motif out to the limit of tolerance and
met with embarrassment In his con
cluding bars; and a similar Judgment
might not bo out of place with refer
ence to his finale. But this opinion Is
ndvanced with hesitation; the fact is,
Professor Hemberger as a composer
is a law unto himself. There were
bars in his quartette that evoked de
cided enthusiasm and again there were
some that abandoned so frankly the
conventions that one hn3 to withhold
a verdict pending more thoughtful con
sideration. The vocalist of the evening, Mr.
Wooler, sang two numbers in excellent
voice, und was cordially encored.

"A war for business is being waged
with savage competition between the
Carnegie Steel company, limited, of
Pittsburg, and the Illinois Steel com
pany, of Chicago," says yesterday's
"The fight began In Chicago Monday,
after the break of the steel rail pool,
when the Illinois concern charged that
the Pittsburg firm was Invading Its
territory and was shading prices. To
meet the competition, It mot the prices
offered by the Carnegie company's
agents, and the latter came back with
still lower prices. Tho railroad buy
ers played the two llrms until open
quotations yesterday were $17, Pitts
burg, and $18, Chicago, for rails of
standard section, which means actual
selling prices of $15 and $10 respective
ly. Just what roads placed orders with
the Carnegie company are not given,
but It Is not denied that orders aggre
gating a largo tonnage have been
booked for delivery the coming spring.
It is estimated that orders aggregating
600,000 tons have been placed during
tho week by western and southern
"Tho companies east of the moun
tains are strong and have close rail
way connections. Tne owners of the
two mills at Seranton, the Lackawan
na Steel company, are closely allied
with the coal carrying roads, particu
larly the Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western, and the Delaware and Hud
son Canal and Railway company,
which are largely owned by tliu Van
derbllts. This is thought to give the
Laukawanna company an advantage
over Its neighbors, the Pennsylvania
and the Bethlehem Stool companies,
as well as with the Maryland Steel
company. The Maryland Steel com
pany is closely allied with the Balti
moi e and Ohio Interests, the Pennsyl
vania Steel company with the Pennsyl
vania railroad, and the Bethlehem with
the Erie, Lehigh Valley and Reading
HOW TIIE TROUBLE STARTED.
"Because the steel companies furnish
large freight tonnage on raw materials
to the railroads along which their
plants are situated, preference la al
wayn given to the companies) which
furnish freight when orders for lulls
are placed. For tills reason the Penn
sylvania railroad has always divided its
tonnage between the Pennsylvania
Cambria and Carnegie Steel companies
and placed an order for 50,000 tons
among those companies last month.
It Is sluted that it was because of the
placing of this order that the trouble
began In the pool. The Carnegie com
pany Is charged with' having offered a
low price for the entire tonnage, forc
ing the other companies to meet the
"Regarding the story from Chicago
that an alliance, offensive and defen
sive, has been entered Into by the Car
negie and Rockefeller Interests, little
credence is rlven the report in Pitts
burg. At the olllees of the Carnegie
Steel company no expression of opin
ion could he obtained regarding it.
Brokers close to the inside of what is
going on pronounce the story absurd,
and say It arose out of the fact that the
Carnegie and Oliver Steel companies
have jointly contracted for the ores in
the Massabl region with the Rockefel
ler interest, and the latter has secured
for its lake vessels a guarantee of tho
exclusive tonnage of the coal which is
to he shipped from the Conneaut docks,
giving freight both ways, and a profit
for investments in lake vessels, of
which there are eighteen 1, 000-ton
freighteis, and two more building.
"Another reason cited for disbeliev
ing the story is that neither Andrew
Carnegie nor John D, Rockefeller would'
consent to play second fiddle to any
other man in their respective lines of
business. It whs also stated that the
command of raw materials which the
Carnegie Steel company now has per
mits it to carry out plans which have
long been In contemplation and for
which the head of the company has
long been directing efforts, namely,
to become the recognized leader of steel
manufacture in the world, and to In
vade the large and profitable markets
which British manufacturers have so
EXPECT TO EXPORT RAILS.
"It Is claimed that it is expected by
the Carnegie Steel company to do a,
large export business in all forms of
steel products which it makes, nnd that
agencies have been or are being estab
lished In the great importing cities of
South America, Asia and Europe, two
having already been established in
England, with Millard F. Hunsicker in
charge as general agent.
Andrew Carnegie arrived in Pitts
burg last night from New York and
left the limited at Homewood station.
He will be the guest of II. C. Frlek
during his stay in the city. An effort
was made to ;et from him an expres
sion regarding the rumors from Chi
cago connecting his name and that of
John D. Rockefeller In a combination
torerulate tho production of Iron and
steel, but he declined to say anything
at this time. It Is understood that Mr,
Carnegie's visit is to confer with his
partners regarding the policy of the
company aB to steel rail prices, and the
fight for business going on between the
seven companies which manufacture
rails. It was said last nljiht that the
pales of rails contracted for during the
week exceed all records for a similar
time, and the tonnage already booked
by several companies Is very large, in
dicating that the railways intend to
epend large sums of money in better
ments this year.
The Philadelphia Ledger of yesterday
has this to say concerning the situa
tion: "Much reticence was observed yester
day by the representatives of the steel
companies which formed the broken
rail pool, and Information regarding
the probable result of the cut In prices
on tho steel nnd iron business was dif
ficult to Eecure. Inquiry among iron
and steel merchants and manufactur
ers of Iron and steel products other
than rails developed the fact that a
Very uneasy feeling prevailed In the
trade, and those wlio jjave expression
to their views indicated that they
thought tho break in prices, If nai
quickly stopped, would result in a gen
eral demoralization of the whole iron
und steel trade.
MANY BIG ORDERS.
There. Is nssurance, however, that
orders for hundreds of thousands of
tons of rails have been placed since last
Friday at the price of $20 a ton or loss,
and that the Indications are that the
tall tnlllB hnVo business enough ahead
to keep them running several weeks at
least. Further orders are expected, for
It Is known that railroads are figuring
on contracts, with tho idea of placing
orders for the rnlls they need In ntl
vahce of any possible rise in the price.
"But the idea, Hint the cut In the
price will have the effect of stimulating
railroad construction Is regarded as
visionary. A reduction of $5 a ton In
the price of rails running seventy-five
pounds to the yard Is a saving ot less
than $000 a mile of single track, which
Is very trilling when compared with
the total cost of constructlo.n per mile.
Tho orders which have been placed
during tho last five days are for rails
needed for renewals and for sidings or
extensions demanded by tho business
ot the respective roads, and would
have been purchased sooner or later
at any price. Railroad construction,
which has fallen olt so greatly during
the last few yenrs of depression, will
not be renewed until there Is n de
in n ml for more railroad facilities.
"An authority in tho steel rail trade
said yesterday that future prices will
depend on the action of the Illinois
and Carnegie companies. If they re
new the old agreement to stand to
gether the price will not fall below $17,
nnd It may advance, while, on the oth
er hand, It tho antagonism continues,
the Carnegie company may make a
further cut, and the eastern markets
would -then probably find It necessary
to reduce their price below $20 to meet

William Emery, a member of tho

when or how the money was taken Mr.
Emery cannot tell, but he lias an idea.

MAYOR BAILEY GOES
Wcnlcd to Sec Just the Condition ol Af
fairs That Exists on South Side.
NECESSITV OF PROPOSED SEWER
It Was .Undo Piiiiifullv Appnrcnt Dur
ing VeMerdny's Visit to tliu District
In Which It Is Intended to Construct
n ."Unlit Souer--Condltloii of the
Streets That Wcro Passed Over
by tliu l'arty--Somc of the Argu
Mayor James O. Bailey, accompanied
by City Engineer Joseph Phillips nnd
Street Commissioner Kinsley, yestor
day made a tour of Inspection of tho
district on the South .Side in which it
is proposed to construct a main sow
er. An ordinance providing for tho
construction of tho sower has been
passed by councils and Is now In the
hands of the mnyor for approval or
disapproval. It was with a view to
making a personal Investigation into
the necessity of a sewer In that part
of the city that the mayor visited tjio
South Side yesterday. What he saw
certainly must have convinced him
that a sewer in that part of the city
Is a crying necessity.
His honor, of course, refused to com
mit himself as to what his action with
reference to the ordinance will be, but
utter tho light that was thrown on the
subject for him yesterday, It is not
likely he will veto the measure unless
he decides that the building of the
sewer under tho present ordinance
would entail considerable litigation and
finally result in leaving the city with
a lot of sewer liens on Its hands that
it would have no means of collecting.
It has been the general impression that
the fifteen dnys allowed the mayor to
sign the ordinance would elapse next
Monday, but he announced yesterday
that the ordinance was not placed In
his hands until Feb. 2 and thnt he has
until Wednesday, Feb. 17, to decide
what action he will take relative to
it. Tills being true, it Is more than
probable that he will hold his approval
or disapproval of the ordinance back
until after next Tuesday election day.
TOUR OF INVESTIGATION,
mayor and his companions left
the city hall yesterday afternoon at
2.30 and reached the South Side by
way of the new bridge, touching the
sewer route at Front and Mooslc
streets. The party drove east on
Mooslc street to Stone avenue, cross
ing an open sewer several feet wide,
which flows under Mooslc street, be
tween Pittston and Prospect avenues.
Along Stone avenue the gutters wero
choked with ice, and at the street in
tersections great sheets of Ice com
pletely covered tho roadway. At
Orchard street and Stone avenue an
old man was at work cutting away the
Ice so that the gutter might be opened
At Stono avenue and Willow street,
the end of the Willow street branch
of the proposed sewer, there was an
other mass of Ice, and notwithstanding
the wnrm weather of the last few days
which has dissipated every vestige oi
ice in almost every other section of the
city, Willow street down to Pittston
avenue was more than half covered
with Ice where the surface water flow
ing down tho hill had frozen nnd
caused great quantities of ice to accu
mulate. What the hill must have
looked like during the cold spell ot
two weeks ago, It required no very
vivid imagination to picture. Beech
street hill was in the same deplorable
condition, and when the party was
going along that street the attention
of the mayor was called to the fact
that nearly every cellar has more or
less water in it for the greater part of
KEEPS AN ENGINE AT WORK.
One man on Pittston avenue has an
automatic engine in his cellar which
no keeps running almost constantly
pumping water and yet lie Is not uble
to keep tho cellar dry. It Is claimed
that the cellars are not "naturally wet
and that their condition is due to the
surface water that comes tumbling
down the hill In tireat volume during
storms and spring thaws. Elm street
hud its share of ice above and be
low Cedar avenue. That thoroughfare
was not aflllcted with ice, but mud
and stagnant pools of water are equal
ly as gieat u. nuisance there. At Elm
street and Remington avenue there Is
a pest hole that must be a great disease
breeder in warm w.eather. From Elm
street the party moved along Cedar
uvenue to Maple street and then went
east until Pittston. avenue was reached.
As the wagon turned Into Pittston
avenue City Engineer Phillips said:
"This is nothing better than a cess
pool." Tho appearance of the street
seemed to warrant the statement. In
the deep gutters on each side of the
street streams of water -vyere running
and here and there were great heaps of
ice. A thick, pasty mud covered the
street and puddles of dirty water were
encountered every few yards. At this
point Pittston uvenue Is at the foot of
the hill and Is the lodging place of ev
erything that comes down in the open
sewers from the hill. Further soutli
the land takes a dip and Codnr avenue
becomes the common repository for the
tilth of the district above. On Pitts
ton avenue Select Councilman West
pfahl, S. S, Spruks and others were
met who grew eloquent In relating the
necessity of a sewer in that part of the
MR. SPRUKS' ARGUMENT.
"I have a house here 'that cost me
$0,000," said Mr. Spruks, "and I don't
suppose I could get $4,000 for it because
the man who would buy that kind of a
house would insist on having sanitary
"Edward Maloney has been desirous
for years of putting up a modern brick
row of buildings on a corner lot he has
on this avenue," remarked Council
man Westpfahl, "but It has been Impos
sible for him to do so because this re
gion is not sewered. Give us a sewer
and this part of the city will take u
now lease of life. AVTthin live years af
ter the time the sower is laid Pittston
avenue will bo paved and rank with
the finest streets In the city."
After gaining a thorough knowledge
of the condition of Pittston avenue and
the Intorsectliiir streets tho mayor und
his party returned to city hall. No
where on the route was a single protest
entered against the construction of the
sower. Those who oppose it did not
put In an appearance and those who
favored it were numerous and very
adlcal in expressing their opinions.

with his bride nnd commenced house
keeping, thinking no one would have
any Objection to Ills marriage, and not
realizing that ho had been guilty of

the death of his wife, pursuant to her
request, he married his wife's daugh
